Ever sit in the car, listening to your favorite singer or rapper (whatever you listen to) and imagine you’re them, live on stage, hitting all the notes and making all the facial expressions? Yeah! Me too!
Jimma Fallon started something with the Tonight Show LipSync challenge! Then the phenom continued with the LipSync Challenge show, hosted by LL Cool J! That show is amazing! Celebs from film, television, music and everything else take the stage and live out their fantasies while performing a lipsync routine of their favorite songs; competing for the title of champion (I guess they get a trophy or money to a charity).
That is what I thought about one day while driving home from work listening to Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”. Why not have a lipsync challenge that benefits a very important charity?
So I put some ideas together and contacted my good friend Vanessa Payne, who is currently living with lupus and has a foundation and event in support of Lupus Awareness.
With no questions asked, LipSync 4 Lupus was born! We pitched the idea to Lupus Research Alliance and Bill Bateman’s Bistro and they were so excited to hear there will be an event to help raise money for research!
Bateman’s Bistro has agreed to donate 20% of everything sold that night (drinks/dinner) to Lupus Research Alliance. Awesome right?
